I am an Omaha native who has enjoyed retaining roots in a city of family, friends, community, and opportunity! With a human resources background spanning the healthcare, manufacturing, financial services, and, now, franchise industries, I enjoy continually learning and growing in order to best serve the candidates, employees, and leaders with whom I partner to align talent to the right opportunity, at the right time.
I obtained my Bachelor’s Degree in Communication from the University of Nebraska at Omaha and obtained my Master’s Degree in Organizational Leadership (MOL) from College of Saint Mary.
I am passionate about the people in my life for whom I care and the work that I am fortunate enough to do each day. I find fulfillment in coaching others to grow their passions and look forward to partnering with you!
Chief People Officer
I was born—and raised Royal—in Kansas City, Missouri. Surrounded by supportive and influential family and friends, life in the Showme State helped form my values and drivers, particularly around relationships. I grew to believe in the power of a smile, a helping hand, genuine compliment—and really good BBQ.
When I packed my car in the spring of 2002, headed due north, I was ready for adventure and even a little risk. At that moment, I never could have or would have imaged how much that decision would change my life.
Omaha is now my home. It is where my husband and I are instilling our values with our son. This great city of Omaha is where we enjoy amazing friends and celebrate our milestones. It is where we work to make a real difference in our community. We love Omaha, but could someone help me find some quality BBQ?
I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing Management from Bellevue University. I am a proud graduate of Leadership Omaha Class 40–arguably the best class ever.
At RecruitZee, I am leading our team of Recruiters to help find the best talent across the great USA!
Using her enthusiasm and unique gift for helping turn passion into purpose, Nikki Kimura is excited to find you the best fit for your franchise! For the past decade, Nikki has been immersed in finding & placing talent, starting with her collegiate cheer and dance coaching experience. She takes great pride in understanding the vision, purpose, and goal of her franchisees and pairing them with individuals that will turn that vision into a reality – she can’t wait to partner with you too!
Nikki was born & raised in Omaha and celebrates an alma mater from Northwest Missouri State University (Go Bearcats!). When she’s not connecting our franchise partners with the top candidates in their locale, you’ll find her assisting with the University of Nebraska’s Spirit Squad or spending time with her husband Dave and three kids!
I am a proud native of Omaha and recently graduated from Creighton University, earning a BSBA in Management with a specialization in Human Resources. Currently, I am fortunate to combine two pivotal facets of talent management: Recruitment and Training. Working closely alongside franchisees, my primary objective is to identify and attract exceptional individuals who can contribute to the growth and success of their teams.
During my leisure time, you will often find my daughter and me tending to our garden or enjoying family walks with my husband. We also cherish our visits to the Omaha Henry Doorly Zoo, creating lasting memories together. When I seek moments of solace, you will discover me engrossed in a captivating book or indulging in an audiobook through my headphones.
Balancing my professional pursuits and personal joys, I am dedicated to fostering talent, nurturing relationships, and finding fulfillment in both my career and family life.
I am a Nebraska native – born and raised in Lincoln but moved up to Omaha when I attended Creighton University. I have my Bachelors (Creighton) and my Masters (Bellevue University) both in Marketing but have spent most all of my professional career in a recruiting role. I’ve recruited within the accounting, construction, trucking, sales, healthcare, and academic industries, so I’ve gotten to know quite a wide range of roles, candidates and companies.
I’ve been married to my husband Colin (CJ) and we will be welcoming twin boys in the spring, which will bring our family to five! We also have our spunky 12-year-old mini dachshund, Frank! We are big fans of Huskers, golfing, and traveling and try to get our fill of each of those as much as we can!
I love working with people – finding the right person for the right role! If you have any questions for me, or about RecruitZee, don’t hesitate to contact me!
